Wild Ale fermented with Wild Huckleberries.
Every summer in small western Montana towns, locals gather and talk in hushed tones about secret discoveries and motherloads in them hills. In the Treasure State, the prize they whisper of is gold, but not the bright yellow stuff. This is purple gold and equal in value: wild Montana Huckleberries. In July, hunters brave ravenous grizzly bears and would be claim jumpers to gather these precious gems clinging to steep mountainsides. We are very fortunate to have friends in Montana who hand pick wild huckleberries and drive 1300 miles to Barrelworks so that we may turn this precious cargo into liquid gold. Huck Yeah! is a wild ale fermented with wild Montana huckleberries. Its bursting with fresh bright fruit flavor and aroma rounded out by earthy funk, sumptious oak and mouthwatering acidity.
Aged 8-18 months in an 85/15 mixture of French and American Oak barrels.
Bottle from the Barrelworks. Pours hazy purple, small pinkish white head, decent lacing. Aroma is funky, cheesy basement, geuze, blueberries, oak tannin. Flavor is light tart, medium funk, nice berry notes, cheese and basement. Medium body, soft carbonation. This is wonderfully complex and very lambic-like. Amazed this has only 2 rakes here; world class beer IMO.
(Bouteille provenant de la source): Un pain au levain bien coussiné, badigeonné d’une confiture entre le bleuet et la cerise. La barrique glisse sur la langue, l’acidité enrobe sans brusquer et la finale diffuse longuement.
Pinkish red pour. Great juicy Berry nose and flavor. Intriguing mix of sourdough oak and fruit. Very balanced and complex, and quite delicious. Another in an increasingly long line of great Firestone Walker beers.
